Kenny Stills Calls Out Dolphins Owner For Trump Fundraiser

Stephen Ross, the billionaire who owns a large amount of stake in Equinox and SoulCycle, released a statement on August 7 after the fallout regarding a fundraising dinner for President Trump planned for August 9.

Stills clarified that he didn't intend for his tweet to pit him against Ross, and he doesn't have any hard feelings about the owner.

"I am here to make sure people know where the money is going".

"The tweet doesn't, like, put me against Mr. Ross", Stills told reporters in the locker room.

Don't expect Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott to pull a Le'Veon Bell and sit out the entire 2019 season.

"Steve Ross got into a little bit of trouble this week, I said, 'Steve welcome to the world of politics!'" the paper quoted Trump as saying.

Ross has a nonprofit with a mission statement that says "We are a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations".

Then Stills revealed that the death threats he received at the height of the kneeling controversy in 2017 have returned.

Rains pound South India; Kerala worst hit with 57 dead
The state still doesn't have a cabinet in place two weeks after Mr Yeddiyurappa took oath as chief minister. Maharashtra and Karnataka state have reported 29 and 24 deaths, respectively so far.

Trump's line speaks to the tack Ross has taken since backlash arose around the fundraiser that sold tickets ranging from $100,000 to $250,000. He anticipates both sides will speak in the near future. "I told him that". It's just like, 'Hey, these two things don't align. It's real. Everything that I do has been real from the very beginning. "And it's going to be that way".

"I have know Donald Trump for 40 years, and while we agree on some issues, we strongly disagree on many others, and I have never been bashful about expressing my opinions".

"I've always have been an active participant in the democratic process", Ross said in the statement, according to ESPN.

He added that he likes to "engage directly and support the things I deeply care about", out of "deep concern for creating jobs and growing our country's economy". "I can't just ask them to follow what I think, so I think I will respect their choices", she said.

Stills, one of the more active players in the National Football League when it comes to social action, tweeted his feelings about the location of the fundraiser Wednesday.

On Thursday, Stills doubled down on that argument.

The NFL Players Association said Wednesday that it stood by Stills. "We support him, as we do all of our players, in using their platform for good".
